I’ve been waiting for this day for so long and now I don’t even know what to say. I’ve been blogging on vapaus since summer 2015 and now the next big step was made: vapaus is finally self-hosted and has it’s own domain!
So, now a new chapter can start!
It might not seem like big deal but I was so excited for this. As you might know I had to neglect my blog in the last few months because of school but since the beginning of the year I’ve been waiting for summer so I can relaunch vapaus and turn it into exactly what I want it to be. It’s not completly there yet but the first few steps – which were definitly the hardest – were made and now we just have to wait and see how it will turn out.
From German to English
If you come from my old blog you might notice a big difference: I’m not blogging in German anymore. I don’t follow many german speaking people on social media so I’m hardly ever confronted with it. Because of that English feels way more natural on the internet for me. It’s also a great way too improve my English and to reach a bigger audience. I’ve been thinking about this change for a long time and I thought that the relaunch of vapaus would be a good time to finally switch languages.
If you’re new here, firstly I’m glad you found vapaus and secondly don’t worry, my old posts will be translated over time but I was just too excited to start again so they have to wait for a little while longer.
Categories and topics
Another thing that has changed are the categories. Now there are only three of them instead of four: love, explore and create.
Love is rather self-explaining: it’s about the things I love so there you’ll find favorites, chattering, recipes, everything life related and fitness (even though I still have to work on that one).
I want to try and make Explore mostly about traveling but it will also be about beauty and fashion (because there is still a lot for me to explore when it comes to those two things) and all sorts of reviews.
Create is – as you might have guessed – about creativity. So you’ll find lots of DIYs and photography there. There will be posts about the blog, web related stuff and organizing as well.
Otherwise there is not much I can say except that I have a lot of ideas (would be sad if there wouldn’t be any after more than eight months without blogging) and I’m really excited to finally share them with you.
If you want to stay updated, you can follow me on all my social media channels, they are linked in sidebar and footer, and also subscribe to vapaus on Bloglovin’ or via email, they’re both in the footer.
I will see you very soon!
Love, Jacky N.
